Don't pour your holiday grease down the drain! Grease clogs your pipes and can even cause sewer backups. Protect your home, city and environment by recycling it during this regional collection event. Collected cooking oil and grease will be used to create biodiesel or turn it into biogas for energy production. Follow the signs on Wisteria Street and drop off your used oil at the collection station outside the gate near the dumpster.
